existing u.n. resolutions and previous violations by iran of its international obligations, that we don't recognize such a right, and if, by the way, negotiations break down, there will be no additional international recognition that's been obtained. so this deal goes away and we're back to where we were before the geneva agreement, subject -- and iran will continue to be subject to all the sanctions that we put in place in the past and we may seek additional ones. but i think what we have said is we can envision a comprehensive agreement that involves extraordinary constraints and verification mechanisms and intrusive inspections, but that permits iran to have a peaceful nuclear program. now, in terms of specifics, we know that they don't need to have an underground, fortified facility like fordor in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. they certainly don't need a heavy-water reactor at arak in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. -- iraq in order to have a peaceful nuclear program. they don't need some of the advanced centrifuges that they currently possess in order to have

at the u.n. in geneva. we fought hard for that. but think of the new markets that would open up and the bridges between people that peace would build him a think of the flood of foreign investment and business opportunities that would come to israel and how that would change the lives of everyday people throughout the region. fischer, the former governor of the bank of israel said, a peace agreement with the palestinians could boost israel's gdp in a short period of time by as much as 6%. israel would also enjoy a normal peaceful relationship the moment this agreement is signed with 22 arab nations and 35 muslim all.ns -- 57 countries in it is not beyond our imagination to envision that a new order could be established in the middle east, in which countries like jordan, morocco, a newly independent palestine and an internationally recognized jewish state of israel joined together to promote stability and peace. new from the start that if his young state were to do more than just survive, if israel were to succeed, it would need more than just strong defenses. he said israel woul

the kinds of inspection regimes and international sanctions and u.n. resolutions that were in place. we have been able to craft an international effort and verification mechanism around the iran nuclear program that is unprecedented and unique. that doesn't mean it's easy. and that's why we have to take it seriously. but i think one of the things that i've repeatedly said when people ask, why should we try to negotiate with them, we can't trust them, we're being naïve, what i try to describe to them is not the choice between this deal and the ideal, but the choice between this deal and other alternatives. if i had an option, if we could create an option in which iran eliminated every single nut and bolt of their nuclear program, and foreswore the possibility of ever having a nuclear program, and, for that matter, got rid of all its military capabilities, i would take it. but -- >> next question -- >> sorry, haim, i want to make sure everybody understands it -- that particular option is not available. and so as a consequence, what we have to do is to make a decision as to, given the options

to get a constructive soup -- discussion along the lines of the you and security -- u.n. security council resolutions. host: here is john from new york, republican line. caller: i would like to ask the guests about u.s. foreign-policy posture all over the world. it seems that the u.s. is leaving parts of the world to other actors such as russia in the middle east, and our allies around the world have less and less trust with u.s. to back them up in a situation where they get in trouble with one of these other actors like china is missing in defense identification zone that they're setting up. south korea and japan, for instance, had their airlines say that we will not respect that zone. the u.s. told airlines to respect that zone the u.s. all over the world where they back down, now they are backing down in china, and putin is trying to re-institute the soviet union. all over the world the u.s. is backing down in every situation. can you explain that please? guest: john, thank you for your question. i will talk about two things. i will talk about syria and then china. you raise two import
